Wood in South Fork Payette Canyon section

Quoting Brad Nelson:

South Fork Payette Canyon: There is a large tree across the entire river toward the top of Blackadar's rapid. We were able to go over the top of the tree next to the cliff on river left but when the water comes down lower there may not be any good way of getting around it. The root ball is huge and on the river right side - out of the water. The tip appears to be caught on the cliff slightly under water on the left side. No good portage.

Thanks for the info. Bummer - that piece of wood will screw up the whole run if it doesn't move.

You can see that spot from the road above to scout whether it's still there before putting on.

Thanks for the post!!! As we all know, the namesake of the rapid, Dr. Blackadar died here years ago after getting stuck under a log. I'm gonna take your post and put it on kayakidaho too.
